    Landry Jones by far. Bradford got hurt pretty early and he actually had 10 starts. This will basically be his second year as starting QB.

    I think its going to be Garrett Gilbert. What he showed in the BCS champ game was enough to win me over for this season. I think coach DrunkenSoldier is gonna have him ready to play

    Out of the three listed, I would have to say Landry Jones. Like Jerzey pointed out, he has the experience and is comfortable in the system. It seems like both Florida and Texas are going to be tweaking their offensive systems to compensate for losing their QB's. Texas will become more run oriented and Florida will rely less on QB running.

    However, I think that the best successor will not be any of those three. My pick is Jared Crick, replacing Ndamukong Suh on the Blackshirt's defensive line. Despite playing in Suh's shadow, Crick managed to put up solid defensive numbers. In fact, he broke the single game sack record for Nebraska against Baylor last year with five sacks in the game.

    Stats wise it will be Landry Jones. Oklahoma QBs always put up sick up numbers. Unfortunate as it is for us Vols fans, ive heard nothing but great things about Brantely. I think he along with Gilbert will shine, but Jones will out stat them.

    Brantley will be good as well... pretty sure Demps will inflate some numbers by taking small dumpoffs to the house
